The William and Mary Board of Visitors met this week and dealt with a wide range of financial issues including cuts to make up for decreased state funding, tuition for the 2017 freshmen class, and faculty raises.
The college is looking for ways to save money as it anticipates a decrease in state funding.
One way the college will trim costs will be to drop the temperature of classrooms when they are not generally in use.
Sam Jones, senior vice president for Finance & Administration, said the savings could be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars just from the temperature change. The university will identify other places to cut in the coming months.
